Love these so much! More cake-like than chewy brownie, but that's fine with us because the flavor is there! Yummm!

My son loves brownies and I am always looking for new ones to try. These were great and he told me they are delicious. They are more cake like brownies rather than chewy, but they tasted so good with the frosting. I sprinkled crushed pecans on top of the frosting too!
